This is an early prediction for best picture nominees:
Brokeback Mountain
Munich
King Kong
Walk the Line
Cinderella Man

Of course, Capote, Good Night & Good Luck, Syriana, and possibly Crash and a few others could sneak in.

I really think Kong will get selected. It's got great buzz and should be a big hit. It's the only big budget title that has any shot.

I think Universal is going to do whatever it can to promote it though. Plus, the dvd release has to help.

They could have 4 of the 5 nominees in Munich, Kong, Brokeback Mountain, and Cinderella Man.

I've always suspected that Hurt was probably dead-on in his portrayal of a Philadelphia mobster. The problem is that not many of us are familiar with the characteristics of a Philadelphia mobster so we see it as an odd performance.

This guy seems to have liked it:
The best acting, however, belongs to William Hurt, whose brief, third-act appearance as a bitter mobster might be the best performance of the year. The scene between him and Tom, in which they finally confront one another in an attempt to clear up the truth, is an absolute revelation, mainly because of Hurtís mesmerizing performance as a dark, twisted man who has passed the brink of madness years ago. There are few actors better than William Hurt working today, no small thanks to his uncanny ability to be in the constant state of reinventing himself with fresh, offbeat characters. He has never been as absolutely chilling as he is in A History of Violence; his crime boss is a man who cloaks his insanity as successfully as Tom suppresses his seeming natural tendency to extreme violence, and when the two men finally meet and expose each otherís greatest vulnerabilities, the result is one of the best acted scenes that I have seen in a long, long time. To say much more would force me to reveal plot twists that I refuse to give away, but if I had to put my money on a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the Oscars, Hurt would most certainly be at the top of the list.

I remember when Knight's Tale came out and they said he was going to be big and he never quite got there but with Brokeback he is finally arriving and he deserves all the kudos for his work too.
